world, the honkytonk world, and more of a hillbilly fan base. and she grew up in the christian world. and we were afraid, when we first got married, to mix the hillbillies and the christians together. so we found that the christmas music wound up being the best place for that. then, after all these years, we found out we were singing to the same people all this time. >> jay: yeah, okay. >> i would get them liquored up on saturday night. she'd save them on sunday morning. >> jay: wow, that's pretty good. [ applause ] i want to thank you. you have been -- you have been a good friend to the show as well. you have been coming here for 20 years. >> yeah, over 20 years. >> jay: yeah, i want to thank you for that. >> well, we want to do the same thing. the country music community is better off because you were so kind to it over all these years. >> jay: well, i always liked country music. and you got a lot of stuff going, a lot of great coverage on this one as well. >> yes, that's buck owens and merle haggard. bakersfield, just a couple hours north. >> jay: vince, thank you very much, buddy. >> thank you. >> jay: great having you. leslie, thank you as much for all of your kind words. that's very nice. david, thank you for your work. that didn't make sense at all,
but thank you. thank you. they were good work. thanks, everybody. jimmy fallon coming up now! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ tonight's guests are -- and featuring the legendary roots crew. and here he is -- jimmy fallon! [ cheers and applause ] ♪ [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: all right! hey! hey, everybody! wow.
[ cheers and applause ] that's what i'm talking about right there. thank you! thank you very much. welcome to "late night with jimmy fallon," everybody. how you feeling? good? [ cheers and applause ] that's what i'm talking about. thank you very, very much. i -- i'm so -- i am so sorry i was late getting out here. apparently i pissed off chris christie and he popped the tires on my city bike. and i just -- [ laughter ] yeah. this isn't good here. new jersey governor chris christie is dealing with a scandal after it was revealed that a top aide shut down access to the george washington bridge to get back at a democratic mayor for not endorsing him. christie was furious when they blocked the bridge, because he thought they said they were blocking the fridge. he was like, "what? [ laughter ] not on my watch, man! who i got to kill? who do i got to eat? kill, i meant kill!" [ applause ]
hey! i'll put it down there. sharon jones right there on hot sax. [ cheers and applause ] i love you. oh, man. actually, though, chris christie held a press conference today to address the bridge scandal where he insisted that he is not a bully. and he will sit on anyone who says otherwise. [ laughter and applause ] "say you're sorry." [ light laughter ] dribble to -- some -- quick. here's some more political news. today president obama announced a new plan to create things called "promise zones" in parts of the country where the economy still needs help. "promise zones"? sounds less like an economic plan, more like something your parents would say during the sex talk. [ laughter ] "remember, gary, you should wait until you're in love before touching someone's promise zone." [ laughter and applause ] "okay." ♪ hot sax.
>> steve: hot sax? >> jimmy: hot sax! ♪ [ cheers ] the reed broke on that one, yeah. >> steve: she dropped the reed. yeah i saw that. >> jimmy: speaking of the president though, yesterday obama gave photographers a rare chance to take pictures of his weekly lunch with joe biden. then biden told his friends, "told you i knew the president." [ laughter ] of course, one of the big stories this week has been the polar vortex. i've never said that word ever. those two words. [ light laughter ] the polar vortex. this massive cold front that's caused some of the coldest temperatures ever recorded. with that in mind, it's time for "how cold is it?" with the roots. ♪ ♪ how cold is it how cold is it ♪ >> brrrr! >> jimmy: hey, roots. how cold is it? >> jimmy, it's so cold that subway's selling $5 inch longs. [ laughter ]
>> questlove: it's so cold that simon cowell's nipples went back inside. [ light laughter ] >> it's so cold the most popular sport in the winter olympics is not dying. [ laughter ] >> it's so cold, my thermometer just says, "oh, hell no!" [ light laughter ] ♪ >> jimmy: there we go. thank you, guys. thank you very much. that was "how cold is it?" with the roots. oh, hell no. this is a smart idea. walgreens has announced that it will start making home deliveries of cold medicines to people who are too sick to go outside. then people checked the weather outside and they're like, "i also need toilet paper, cigarettes, light bulbs and beer for my cold. [ laughter and applause ] i need that for my cold, too. and a frozen pizza." this is kind of cool. yesterday at the vatican, pope francis was greeting the public when he spotted an old friend in the crowd and invited the man to ride in the pope mobile. just goes to show you, even the
pope likes showing off to his old friends. [ light laughter ] yeah. "who's prom king now, brad? [ applause ] oh, wrong side of the road? sorry." you know, one of the things i like about this time of year is getting a new calendar. [ laughter ] yep. of course, a lot of people always look forward to the new york firemen calendar. [ cheers ] very popular, but that's not the only new york-related calendar out there. let's take a look at some of these other ones here. first, the "12 worst photos of the statue of liberty." that's a great calendar. [ laughter ] then there's, "buildings in bikinis." i don't know what that is, but looks fun. next we have "people on subways eating subway." that's a rare thing. [ cheers and applause ] then, of course, you have "tiny cab drivers." [ laughter ] i got the one from 2013. it's equally good. and finally, we have "cops on
horses, horses on cops." that's a very popular calendar. [ cheers and applause ] in stores this year. go check them out. this is pretty interesting. a new study found that babies as young as 9 months can tell the difference between friends and enemies. it's raised a lot of questions, like, "what kind of babies have enemies?" [ laughter ] that jerk won't stop bragging about his tooth coming in. [ light laughter ] babies as young as 9 months can tell the difference between friends and enemies, but it takes them until they're 10 months old to figure out their frenemies. "nice onesie, becca." [ laughter and applause ] speaking of babies, this is kind of scary. police are warning that criminals can hack into baby monitors and listen in on people's private conversations, and then use that information to rob them. i could see where this might work. listen to this example. >> hey, did you have a good night's sleep? you ready for your bottle? hey, honey, did you tell tom and marie that we can't make dinner tonight? no.
i asked you to tell marie. yes i did. this morning, i specifically remember, because you said you wanted omelets and i thought you said, "did you talk to tom yet?" and i said, no, and asked if you could talk to marie. whatever. whatever. i'll take care of it. by the way, remember to hide all of our money and jewelry in the third drawer under the socks in case any criminals come to rob us. >> jimmy: that makes sense. better watch it. [ cheers and applause ] you never know. ah, this is a crazy story. earlier, earlier this week a man in california tried to rob a bank. but ran into trouble when the bank teller couldn't read the note he gave her. [ laughter ] yeah, the teller was like, "you want me to fill this bag with ten marlin dubers?" [ laughter and applause ] ten marlin dubers? ah -- here's some local news here. this is kind of a big deal. a small plane recently had to make an emergency landing right in the middle of the bronx. yep. everyone on board managed to escape with minor injuries while
the plane was stolen. [ laughter and applause ] there you go. very classy. and finally, a new poll found that most americans don't think using marijuana is as dangerous as drinking alcohol. i can see that. i mean, if you drink, you can crash your car. if you smoke weed, you'll just forget where you parked. we have great show tonight. give it up for the roots, everybody!

[ laughter ] let's listen to that one. do we have that one? [ regis's voice ] >> i came in like the wrecking ball! there i was, i never hit so hard in love. joy was there. tony bennett was over here and all you did was, wre-e-eck me! we're having a great time and and you're wre-e-e-ecking me! >> jimmy: and finally, at number 100, all the way at the bottom of the charts, here's "guy who admitted to letting the dogs out" by the baha men's next door neighbor. >> steve: oh. this is a great song.
